Kate Middleton arrived at Westminster Abbey on Friday April 29 wearing a long-sleeved wedding dress with lace bodice and full silk skirt by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Her bridal look included a full veil, a Cartier tiara borrowed from the Queen and a small bouquet of white blooms. Her hair was styled half-up, half-down.
From the moment Prince William and Kate announced their engagement, the rumor mill started buzzing about who would be designing the bride’s prized gown.
The dress was reportedly made in private at Buckingham Palace. Those with knowledge of the details were sworn to secrecy, including the designer.
